Kayla Lim

The Bend, was created as part of Melbourne School of Design, Ex-Lab 2017. It was an exploration of combining multiple thin modules to create a rigid, yet elegant form. 

The timber was shaped using the method of hot-pipe steam bending and required a specific timber which wouldn’t succumb to cracking and splintering. These modules are interweaved, pinned together, and inserted into a 3D lasered aluminium pipe to provide the end functionality of a coffee table.
